Today, October 9, 2011, you were blessed by dad and given a name that will be known on the records of the church. It was a wonderful day. We blessed you at Grandpa and Grandma Hansen's house in Hyde Park, Utah and many people came because they love you. Since we live in Rexburg, Idaho and are not close to family we made the decision to have you blessed there. Grandpa Reid and Grandma Dee's bishop presided over the blessing because we were not in our home ward. His name is Bishop Mario Durrant.
Before he gave the blessing he spoke to all of us who attended your blessing. He explained that the blessing today was more for the parents. You will not remember a thing about your blessing that happened today, but it is our responsibility to teach you about it. He went on to say that we have the opportunity as your parents to receive insights about the man you are and the man you will become. He told us to write down things during the blessing and when the time is right, to discuss what was in the blessing to you. When the time is right we will sit down and talk about this special day more!
Your dad gave you a beautiful blessing. There were so many things said in it that brought peace and comfort to your dad and I. We know the potential that you have. We will do our very best as your parents so you can reach this potential.
Today was a great day! You have received the first ordinance you need to be able to return back to our Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ. You have so much to look forward to in this life and we can't wait to experience it with you!
